A modern icon to celebrate 60 years. Inspired by the timeless styles of those early days, the horizontal stripes and classic colors are designed to look great now and for another 60 to come.
Birdwell Competition Jackets have been a status symbol in the California surf scene as far back as the 1960s. As one of the first products we made—just after our board shorts—wearing one with a matching pair of Birdies marked a surfer as a member of a team or club. That often resulted in nods of respect or feelings of envy at the local break or boardwalk.
Cut from SurfNyl TM and double-stitched for unbeatable durability by expert craftspeople in Santa Ana California, this edition features everything we love about our classic jackets with a few updates with outsized impact. With a mesh interior liner that delivers comfort and a less rigid feel, plus a more tailored fit, this jacket wears better than ever.
